Austin, Texas — Whole Foods Market has opened its 35,000-square-foot store at Saltillo, a mixed-use development in East Austin by Endeavor Real Estate Group.
The new store was originally slated to open as one of the Austin-based grocer’s 365 concepts. When the pandemic set in, Endeavor Real Estate Group pivoted to have the store serve as a fulfillment center for other regional stores. It has served as a fulfillment center during most of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The store now offers fresh produce from 75 different growers, full-service meat and seafood departments, a bakery, coffee kiosk and more than 1,000 different wines and 280 different beers, including 150 selections from local alcoholic beverage suppliers.
